YUMMY GOODNESS

ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCTION:
OUR ORCHARDS ARE ALIVE WITH INSECTS AND BIRDLIFE

We take pride in producing Yummy fruit in the most environmentally friendly and safe manner possible. In the mid 1990’s a revolution occurred in apple growing. We introduced our orchards to a new Integrated Fruit Production (IFP) system that was being used successfully around the world.

This certified IFP system uses the monitoring of pest and predator levels, knowledge of their life cycles, mating and pheromone disruption, trapping and other techniques in preference to spraying. Only when pest levels are uncontrollable do we use ‘soft sprays’ that target specific subspecies while not affecting other beneficial insects (or humans), and are safe for the environment. Growing quality fruit in a healthy safe environment is important to us as our kids happily play in our orchards throughout the year.
